Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Enormous oval shaped light, flashing on and off, illuminating through clouds as it moved at high rate of speed through sky.

I am a retired lady, in my 60's and have been a star gazer and observer of aircraft or anything in the sky for many years, but I have never seen anything like I did last night.

About 11:50 PM Thursday night, I was taking out some garbage. The sky was mostly clear with some light clouds. Air was calm. I looked up in the sky and saw a flash of light through the clouds. The light flashed on, then quickly off. It flashed on and off again within seconds, but was already quite a distance south of where I first saw it. It continued flashing and moving north to south, until out of sight. I did not see any craft or what might have caused the light.

The light illuminated an oval shape through the clouds and larger than anything I have ever seen in the sky before. I don't know the dimensions, but it dwarfed any aircraft I've ever seen. You could compare it to a honeybee on a football. There was no sound at all. There is no aircraft I know of that could illuminate such a large area. Could not tell how high it was because it was above a line of clouds the whole time, but just above the planes flying in the area, which were clearly visible.
